Maybe because my first outing as a baby was to a high school football game when I was a few weeks old. Maybe because I was a cheerleader. But I think the biggest reason is that I love a good party in the great outdoors and what better excuse for a party than football.
We love to tailgate for the Hoos at The University of Virginia. And some days the tailgating is the best part of the day. But football season is just too short. So we "tailgate' at the river, when we're kayaking, shooting skeet. Any excuse for a party!!
Enjoy the recipe and the other helpful hints I offer for tailgating year round.

Soften cream cheese and add mayo, lemon juice, Worchestershire Sauce, and Shrimp Dip Blend. Stri until creamy. Add shrimp and mix until well blended. Serve chilled with crackers, bread, whatever suits you.
What happens when a preppy girl buys a farm? She learns how to care for her family, two goats, too many chickens and the latest addition of some bees. All this while still trying to remain the preppy girl she's always been.
I hope you enjoy my creations, recipes and photos of living on the farm.
